Resistbot is the "Reliefbot" you need, trying to help you through the pandemic.
We hope you're staying safe and healthy during this pandemic. If you're still working, whether a grocery clerk or health care worker, thank you for your service. We're fighting for you, here's what the team has built over the past month:
Our researchers spent a lot of time building this one. Send covid to Resistbot to get information on what's happening in your state, here's part of what it looks like:
From the latest testing numbers, to restrictions/closures on bars and restaurants, court, public gatherings, elective surgery; to resources for mental health, medicaid, public assistance, domestic violence, unemployment, taxes, testing, and more.
COVID Test Finder
Send covid testing to look up labs and sites near you that can test you for Covid-19.
Covid Act Now Model
We've teamed up with doctors and data scientists who've modeled the outbreak. It is frightening. You can see projections for your state, and how mitigation strategies could flatten the curve. Send covid model to the bot to see it. If you want, the bot can send this information to your state government. It's already worked in many states.
Request or Volunteer to Make PPE/Masks
We are part of the MasksNOW Coalition and clearly share their love for Rosie the Riveter. Sending masks to Resistbot will give you information and allow you to quickly sign up to request masks; or volunteer to sew, distribute, fund masks, or otherwise help the effort to get PPE to our frontline healthcare workers.
If you're losing health insurance as a result of the pandemic, Resistbot can help. Send the coverage keyword to the bot.
The need is high and you're still allowed to give blood during the pandemic. Sending blood to Resistbot will now return your nearest non-profit community blood centers.
We've built a calculator to estimate your stimulus payment, text stim to the bot to try it.
